WattStation Wall Mount
GE's WattStation Wall Mount provides users with significant improvements to traditional electric vehicle (EV) charging options. It delivers a full-cycle charge to a 24 kWh battery in only four to eight hours in comparison to the 12 to 18 hours it would require to provide the same level of charge if the EV was plugged into a standard electrical outlet. Additionally, the WattStation Wall Mount is compatible for both indoor and outdoor installations. It is NEMA 3R rated to resist rain, sleet and even ice. The GE WattStation Wall Mount can be installed in new or existing construction and can either be hardwired for more permanent installations or plugged into a NEMA 6-50 receptacle for simple removal.
In addition to providing ease of installation and versatility in design, the sleek, weather-resistant GE WattStation Wall Mount meets UL and fire safety standards and conserves energy by allowing users to select zero energy consumption when the charger is not in use. With ground fault protection and clearly labeled LED charging and fault status indicators, consumers have a support system that provides added safety and ease of use.
